Happy Visiting Day everyone! We hope you all had a WONDERFUL time here at ILC today.  Lots of parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends joined us to spend the day with their campers. Today was a fantastic experience for everyone.  I loved having the opportunity to see and speak with so many of you.  It means the world to hear what a wonderful summer your children are having here at ILC.

Our annual post-Visiting Day water fight was a huge success.  This event was a great distraction for those campers who had some difficulty saying goodbye to their parents.  Hot sunny day + cold water = happy wet campers!

Tonight’s evening activity is Squeaky Clean!  They’re a rock and roll band that performs here at camp every summer on the night of Visiting Day.  Squeaky Clean covers classic rock and roll oldies but goodies such as “Stop In the Name of Love.”  We are excited to sing and dance along with them tonight in the gym.  Canteen will be closed after evening activity since there is soooooo much junk food in the bunks.   Curfews will still be at their regular time for everyone.

I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who complimented me for my blogs.  I was overwhelmed by all of your positive feedback, so thank you very much.  I’ve been attending sleep away camp since the age of 2 (I’m 25 years old in case you’re wondering,…wink wink!), so camp is truly in my blood.  I live and die for this place and I love telling you all things camp so you can feel as if you are part of the ILC family here, too.

Ok, I’ll stop getting sappy now.  I hope you all had the most fantastic, stupendous, remarkable, memorable time here at ILC today.  Until tomorrow, the start of our final week of 1st session, ILCUTHERE!
